Torcello Island, Venice
Categories: Islands, Nature & Parks
Spend a few hours on Torcello Island, and you'll understand why Ernest Hemingway chose this as his writing base in 1948. The Cathedral of Santa Maria Assunta dates back to 639 CE and houses 11th- and 12th-century Byzantine art, including a depiction of the Last Judgment. Look out from the bell tower for views of the countryside. The island also is home to two 14th-century palaces, the Palazzo dell'Archivo and the Palazzo del Consiglio. The latter, originally the seat of the island's government, is now a museum. Stop by Locanda Cipriani, the restaurant and hotel where Hemingway wrote "Across the River and Into the Trees."

Torcello has little to do, is very natural and is little inhabited, so it also has its charm! He is assumed that it was the first inhabited island of the Venetian Lagoon. The main current attraction of the island is the Cathedral of the assumption, founded in 639 and with much Byzantine work of the 11TH and 12TH centuries. Another attraction of the island is the Church of Santa Fosca. Personally that liked most the island of Burano.show original
